President Trump vows action after shootings
President Donald Trump on Monday condemned weekend shootings in Texas and Ohio as barbaric crimes “against all humanity” and called for bipartisan cooperation to respond to an epidemic of gun violence.
President said mental illness and video games but made no mention of more limits on sales of firearms.
President Trump said he wanted legislation providing “strong background checks” for gun users, though he has reneged on previous promises after mass attacks.
“We vow to act with urgent resolve,” President Trump said, speaking from the White House about shootings that left 31 dead as the count rose on Monday.
